This is a small winery with limited parking space but high quality wines which are a little pricier than some of the wineries on the "Bottleneck Drive". There is also a fee for wine tastings. Every visitor is greeted by the Israeli owners and tastings are available daily from June to October 1000 - 1730 and weekends from April to... More

I much prefer red wines but as expected all the wines all are amazing.. Sadly, this late in the year many are sold out...so keep that in mind next year! We did pick up one bottle of everything that was left. The reds I will store on a shelf and let them tease me for a year or so! Fortunately,... More

This winery had an elegant and upscale type of wine. And the wines were smooth, delicate, and some of the best I tasted during my trip. The wines were a bit more pricey (not a lot) compared to the other wineries in the area, but the price is worth it if you enjoy high quality. The owner was extremely knowledgeable... More

Every May long weekend, I go with a group of friends wine touring in the Okanagan. Silkscarf has been our fave for several years now. The family-owned and run boutique winery always has a collection of unique wines and they are superb hosts. We always leave with cases of their best wines. It's a must-do!

A bit on the pricey side, this winery offers distinct wines that stand apart from other Summerland wineries. The muscat riesling, the Syrah Rose and some of the Syrah vintages have been simply outstanding. A small tasting room offers one-on-one intimate tasting experience. Don't miss this one!

Stopped by in a whim and so glad we did. Quiet and quaint. Refurbished home nestled among the orchard trees. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Ensemble Blanc has got to be my ultimate favourite wine now; fabulous!! Need to go back a pick up a case (or two 😉).

We spent the afternoon in the area, this was our least favorite. We much preferred Heaven's Gate, Thornhaven & Sonoran. All of these three we thought had better wine, better wine prices, and no tasting fee.

Firstly, let me say that I definitely agree that my colleagues in Summerland do make excellent wines. And we are proud to be part of the Bottleneck Drive group. As of the comment about charging tasting fees: This review is the ultimate proof that our decision to charge for tasting was and is our best and smartest decision we have... More

This was our first visit to silk scarf and we walked out after a tasting facilitated by the owner Ronie that was friendly and informative and engaging. The wines are beautiful and will become our regular stop on visits to the Sumerland Penticton area. Nice job. Thanks Silkscarf.

We've been making Silkscarf winery a "must-stop" anytime we are in the Okanagan valley, this trip in early May was no exception. The always warm reception and welcoming smile is just the begining of tasting some of the best wines the Okanagan has to offer. Roie and Ruth are gracious hosts and have a passion in describing their fabulous wines.... More
